Some people prefer a universe in which there's a great unknown something out there with powers beyond our mightiest guarders-of-the-wall. Some people prefer a universe in which our mightiest guarders-of-the-wall have a sense of humor and recognize the obfuscatory powers of myth. Neither side is wrong, but the former is subject to greater disappointment.
